What special equipment is available if they have a disability and where can they get advice about software or equipment. 1.4 Describe where and how to find information about changes and developments to IT hardware and software. 1.7 Identify security risks including, to data from people, (e.g. theft, viruses or unauthorised access), from the hardware or software not working properly, (e.g. faults, errors or loss) and downloading emails with attachments or software from the Internet. 1.1 Describe how using IT is changing what people do, at home, work, school or other environment and how using on line services, such as banking, mailing lists and shopping is changing people’s access to information. 1.1 Describe how using IT is changing what people do, at home, work, school or other environment and how using on line services, such as banking, mailing lists and shopping is changing people’s access to information. 1.1 Describe how using IT is changing what people do, at home, work, school or other environment and how using on line services, such as banking, mailing lists and shopping is changing people’s access to information. 1.1 Describe how using IT is changing what people do, at home, work, school or other environment and how using on line services, such as banking, mailing lists and shopping is changing people’s access to information. There are lots of differnent programs which business companies use to store infomation and details of certain things, like customer details, criminal details, sales records and other records and details.
Storing infomation using ICT is much easier than doing it on paper due to papers getting lost and other things. Lots of different people have no ICT skills due to not being brought up by it, or because they hate it.
People with disabilities have trouble using ICT, but there are ways to make using computers easier.
For people who are blind or visually impaired, there are "closed circuit camera systems" that can magnefy and enlarge printed text on a computer or television. Stickers can also be put onto the keyboard keys to increase the size of letters and numbers.
For people with physical disabilies, there are larger keyboards, an "on-screen keyboard" to type with the mouse and even predictive text.
For people with learning dificulties, there are simpler keyboards with only letters and numbers on them. Also, sounds, voices and music can be played when you do certain things or finish doing something on the computer.

There are places like the Staffordshire University webiste where you can get adive on how to use and get the special equiptment. The Wikipedia holds information about the latest types of computers and computer-related hardware. You can also go to the Microsoft Corporation website, which is full of computer related information, tutorials, downloads and products. 1.5 Identify the health and safety risks to self and others in using IT and how to keep these to a minimum. Looking at a computer screen for more than an hour cannot damage your eyes, but it can contribute to eyestrain or "tired" eyes.
Also, with most computers, you can recieve an electric shock if you touch certain parts of computer hardware. There are many downsides about computers, though. For example, there is the existance of infectious computer programs, or "computer viruses", which can spread from one computer to another at the worst of times. There are many ways you can get a computer virus, mainly from opening damaged computer documents or email attachments.
There are also people out there who find amusment in stealing people's passwords and identities and running around with ether a false identity or no identity.

Computer hardware and software also have a habit of not working properly, though it's usually because the person who complained isn't using it right. 1.8 Describe what different types of IT-based learning materials and activities are available, (e.g. CD-ROM or on the Internet) and what are the benefits and drawbacks compared with other methods of learning. Educational video-games are a popular thing all around the world, as it mixes IT with learning. There are revision sites on the Internet that help people with their work.
